Scofield Magnet Middle School, 641 Scofieldtown Rd, Stamford CT 06903.

Welcome to Powahay’s 11th. Webelos College with a return to Scofield Magnet Middle School, 641 Scofieldtown Rd, Stamford CT 06903.  We continue our Dream Big Fall Theme encouraging Scouts to explore their interests and passions.  In the words of Dr. Seuss… “Why fit in when you were born to stand out? “  Join us for a action packed morning of earning adventure pins, special programs, and a pizza lunch.

Special Guest — John Higby—The Yo-Yo Guy! BSA has added a Yo-Yo Preview Adventure Pin. This preview adventure gives Webelos Scouts the opportunity to learn the concepts that make a yo-yo work and the basic physics of a pendulum. We are bringing in Yo-Yo entertainer John Higby to highlight this new pin as an opening show. John Higby is the Yo-Yo Guy! He has performed his unique high-energy comedy yo-yo show in 26 countries…  holds the world yo-yo champion title and 4 Guinness World Records. The Yo-Yo Guy is an interactive performance with yo-yos, unicycle, and a giant yo-yo that John walks on! Specializing in family shows, this show is great for all ages!”
